Thieves Steal ATM Machine From Cape May Court House Diner
Middle Township Police are asking for help finding the determined suspect(s) who stole an ATM machine from the Court House Diner in the overnight hours Friday, May 27.
The thieves knew what they were doing enough to cut the phone, cable and internet in the diner and then drag the machine out to their vehicle. The machine carried over $4000 in cash.
How much does an ATM machine even weigh? It must take a real beating or some strong vice grips to open up one of those things.
